iPhone 3g Cases

I was reading something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your position on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read earlier. I am still contemplating over the opposite points of view, but I'm tipped heavily toward yours. And no matter, that's what is so great about modernized democracy and the marketplace of thoughts on-line.

If the iPhone has had no (or only minor) merits all this time - why has it done so well in the rest of the world? Not dominating, of course, but doing quite well. You seem to have disdain for the stupid American consumer who knows no better -- but what of the Japanese? Are they stupid too?

From your reasonings, the iPhone should have never sold more than a handful of phones in the technologically more sophisticated "world outside the US".

You now tout Google's Android. Why? Why should Google be making a phone in the iPhone's image instead of Nokia's? Why is Nokia reducing it's guidance on phone sales in light of the competition when Nokia phones are YEARS more advanced?

Your reasoning seems so sound except that, if it was "all that" -- then there's simply no explanation for the iPhone's success - nor Androids for that matter.

What I see missing from your analysis is that Apple does things BETTER....fewer things but executed better. Plenty of consumers are much more happy to have things simpler and better.

It's funny how we adopt words and adapt our lexicon to the times. This is a very useful slant on things.

Does the lack of UX smoothness on the side of Nokia/Samsung/HTC/etc. preclude them (still) from gaining mind share, even if they are gaining marketshare?
